BREAKAGE: Spotlight

Breakage is a man that needs no introduction for drum & bass/jungle music lovers. To this day, his anthems from years gone by still speak for themselves. So Vain. Staggered Dub. Rise. What you may not know is that Breakage has recently branched out in his production style, and he has released a highly recommended album called Foundation that crosses and blends multiple genres and tempos.

Check out this mix I've put together that showcases not only some drum & bass cuts from his new LP, but some of his classic releases as well...


Breakage - Disco 45 (Remix) (Bassbin)
Breakage - Break-Age (Reinforced)
Nasty Habits - Here Comes The Drums (Breakage Remix) (Reinforced)
Alias - Admit To Love (Critical)
Breakage - Old Skool Ting (Digital Soundboy)
Breakage - Circumference (Inperspective)
Breakage feat. Kemo - Temper (Digital Soundboy)
Breakage - The Look (Scientific Wax)
Breakage - Ask Me (Bassbin)

And if that's not enough, the man himself will be touching down in Ottawa on May 19th, at Ritual Nightclub (137 Besserer St.). Given the scope of Breakage's recent essential mixes for BBC Radio, it's no doubt that we have a night of diverse beats and heavy bass in store for us. Also on the bill are Ottawa's own Counterweight (Threesixty, Karl Haze, Roksteady) and Pandemic.
